I brought my girls on the Saturday before Easter and it was baby animal day. We saw new born lambs, chickens, ducks, calves and pet adult milking cows. It was nice to have such informative staff on hand to teach us. The horse drawn carriage (Tom and Jerry were the draft horses) was no extra charge so we went twice.... More

We visited the Billings Farm and Museum and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We stayed at the Woodstock Inn and our stay allowed us free access to Billings. The horse drawn carriage ride was fun with the beautiful horses, Tom and Jerry pulling us. The wool blankets in the sleigh helped keep us warm on the very cold day. The farm... More

The farm is a great place to visit with city kids. They can learn a great deal about animals and farms.

Had a complimentary horse drawn sleigh ride at the farm because we were staying at the Woodstock Inn. Blue skies, Tom and Jerry are beautiful horses...felt like I was living in a painting. Free hot apple cider and samples of presidential favorite cookies. We'll be back in the summer to explore more if the farm!

Billings Farm is great for kids with many activities and learning exhibits. Billings Farm also has exhibits for adults focusing on the history of the farm, milking the Jersey Cow and more. $12 admission and plan your visit based on their daily activity schedule.

Really enjoyed the Billings Farm tour. I knew nothing about the Woodstock, VT area and our tour guide was excellent and the farm and grounds tour worthwhile. If you enjoy learning history when in an area this is a must go to site.

I loved the restored historic farmhouse. I loved all the furniture in that house, I loved the stove, potbellied stove, and all the equipment in the basement. I thought the grounds were gorgeous, and I like seeing the horses and the carriages. I even got a kick out of the farm animals! But my kid was bored with everything except... More

BillingsFarm, Public Relations Manager at Billings Farm and Museum, responded to this review

Leonardo, thanks for taking the time to write. Although we can't guarantee that all children who visit the farm are fascinated with farm animals, we've found that most enjoy the experience and become quite engaged – especially if they are getting close to large farm animals for the first time. It sounds like this was not the case for your... More

Woodstock is quintessential Vermont! What a pretty little town with lots of things to see and do. We enjoyed touring the Billings Farm and Museum. It was a look back in time as well as seeing modern farming operations in Vermont. Lots of fun for kids with all of the animals but history buffs will like it too.
